You will understand more about Pavesi’s work with a quote from the photographer’s interview featured in Self Service magazine Spring/Summer 2012 issue: “I don’t like riches that aren’t accompanied by thought, and I don’t like bourgeoisie if it becomes narrow-minded and uncultured. I like mystery; I don’t like affection. All those things that come from it don’t interest me. People feel safe in affection. And I’m always looking for, and intrigued by, content. I love the unconventional and I’m always looking for it.”

Tao is stepping to the bad side

The Kiss of Demons is a striking fashion editorial on masculine tailoring in fall 2009 women's trends. Shot by fashion photographer Mark Segal, styled by George Cortina and starring beautiful Japanese topmodel Tao Okamoto, the editorial was published in the November 2009 issue of Vogue Japan. Tao trades her delicate but cool femininity for a badass androgynous look while sporting some of the greatest menswear inspired pieces.
